A Walk In The Sun for The Health of It
a long walk with bright sunshine can save your life
The health of the public is being put at risk by recommendations to cover up and stay out of the sun. These recommendations, which are part of Cancer Research SunSmart program, increase the risk of several types of cancer, and may also increase deaths from melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer.
Increased exposure to sunlight or greater intake of vitamin D has been found to reduce the risk of five common cancers in case/control studies. These are cancer of the colon, breast, ovary, prostate and lymphoma. Additional evidence based on differences in incidence of cancer in northern versus southern states of America have found that some 16 or more different types of cancer are less common in the sunny south.
For example, the risk of prostate cancer, which causes some 100,000 deaths a year has been found to be reduced by sunbathing. And sunburn in childhood is even associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer, presumably because people who become sunburned have greater exposure to the sun.
Some 50 per cent of people obtain insufficient vitamin D which increases their risk of cancer and other diseases. Sunlight is the major source of vitamin D. Only small amounts are obtained in foods such as eggs, butter or margarine, meat, some breakfast cereals and oily fish. Vitamin D supplements do not provide enough extra vitamin if taken at the usually recommended levels.
So... grab a loved one and take a long walk in the Sun and soak up the rays of life.
Thank you for your patronage.
Have a sensational week!

Mind and Memory
5 tips to keep from losing your mind
You've heard the saying; the mind is a terrible thing to waste. This is a slogan that originated as a marketing effort to help the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), and it definitely succeeded, now 40 years later, it has $1Billion dollars raised and 350,000 educated college students later. There is debate between mind v.s. brain, a phenomena referred to as “dualism”. For the purposes here, the two will be combined, although there can be a difference. Medically speaking, the things that we want to prevent are Alzheimer's, every 69 seconds someone develops this disease, which can carry a great burden mentally, physically, and economically to the patient and their care givers. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is another tragedy. There are other neurological and mood disorders that can also impair our mind and memory. More over, what about the subtle stress that many face day to day, that when compounded can decrease your minds abilities? Here are 5 things you can do to take power over your mind and memory.
- Eat brain food! Salmon provides essential fatty acids which research is showing can provide help for those suffering from depression. If fish isn't your thing, try fresh ground flax seed to add to a smoothie.
- Exercise! Moving your body is not only good for your muscles, but your mind as well. Minimal goal should be 30 minutes of walking, hiking, biking, swimming at least 3 times a week, but ideally more. Research shows again, that this helps those with depression.
- Forget and Forgive! Life will through challenges at you, friends and family may let you down sometimes, however it is important to not hold that stress in, stress plays a role in virtually every disease/disorder, and learning to let go, will make your life better. If you are having trouble with this, talk to someone. Remember “I” statements to help express your emotions without blame to others.
- Have Play in your Day! You need to choose something to that will help decrease stress. Do you have children or a dog that can bring that into your life? They play regularly, if not try to find another source of playfulness, dancing, laughter, etc, anything to let loose and cut the seriousness.
- Multi-tasking goes Mad to Bad! You try to do it, but sometimes it can cause you to be juggling too much at once, which is a bad thing for your brain. Research shows that only one complicated task should be handled at once, and that it can impair memory and learning. The biggest thing to avoid is multi-tasking when eating as this can impair absorption. Do your best to eat in a comfortable setting with company that you enjoy.

Accept Change With A Smile
Sooner or later you'll experience a crisis in your life, and how you meet it will determine your future happiness and success. Since the beginning of time, everyone has been called upon to meet such a crisis.
A closer look will show you that most "crisis situations" are opportunities to either advance or stay where you are. In fact, most changes in your life will take place out of either "inspiration" or "desperation."
Whatever comes your way, give it meaning and transform it into something of value. Your personal growth is the process of responding positively to change.
A precious stone cannot be polished without friction, nor humanity perfected without trials.

Be Open To Change
“Balance is a dynamic process; it changes with the days, the seasons, the years.”
-- Sherrill Sellman
How rigid are your routines? Do you exercise for 30 minutes, three times each week no matter how you feel?
Routines and structure can provide a valuable framework to bring discipline to our lives. At the same time, we are always changing and it’s wise to be sensitive to our physical, emotional and mental states so we can ensure that our activities truly meet our needs. We need to be willing to change our patterns when our practices no longer serve us.
“Only in growth, reform, and change, paradoxically enough, is true security to be found.”
-- Anne Morrow Lindbergh
“The smallest change in perspective can transform a life. What tiny attitude adjustment might turn your world around?”
